Knowledge and technology drive Valmet roll cover development
It is just as important to optimize the structural design of covers as the choice of materials. This has been, and will continue to be, a tough but interesting challenge, since the requirements of the papermaking process often exceed the demands of any other industry.
Troubleshooting chronic wrinkling on a size press, case study
Valmet investigated an issue where a size press was having wrinkling when the nip closed and before the applicator beam was loaded. The culprit was hydraulic.
Reel audit leads to increased tonnage on fine paper machine
Audit recommendations included replacing a carrying roll with a driven bowed spreader roll. This decreased broke due to winkles, adding 18 tons/day production.
Reel backlash due to worn parts causes sheet breaks, case study
Sheet breaks on PM1 are costing thousands of dollars. Valmet emergency service discovers backlash and further analysis provides temporary and long-term fixes.
Improve roll asset management, reduce risk, lower costs (webinar)
A Valmet webinar reviewed the roll agreement concept including case studies of mill achievements. The recorded webinar is described here and available to view.
Optimizing continuous digester performance (webinar)
Many continuous digesters are operating over design, making the system too sensitive to process disturbances. A Valmet webinar reviewed issues and solutions.
Make slitter adjustments safely, provide better paper quality
Operators must check and adjust slitters in a safe manner regularly for slitter positioning systems to perform well, including gap, sideload, overlap and angle.
Precise head fit prevents uneven loading and excess cover wear
Machine component precision fittings are critical to papermaking success. Commonly misunderstood, head fits are an important part of every roll repair program.
Mill finds good housekeeping can reduce vibration, case study
PM5 was producing waves of vibration that speed limited the machine, reducing production by 10%. Vibration analysis pointed to the gearbox pinion shafts.
Valmet Seal Strip Flex extends roll change intervals, case study
The seal strip on this mill's paper machine was wearing too rapidly. For five years they had struggled. Valmet's new flexible seal more than doubled runtimes.
